The Illustrated Wok - Kickstarter


In an effort to keep you informed on all cookbook news, occasionally I will share a Kickstarter project that I believe will interest many of you - The Illustrated Wok is one such project.

The Cleaver Quarterly, a print magazine exploring the incredible diversity of Chinese cuisine around the world was funded through Kickstarter three years ago. Now they are working on The Illustrated Wok, a print collection of hand-illustrated Chinese recipes from some of the best chefs around.

Who are some of these amazing chefs?

For this cookbook, the team reached out to 40 well-known chefs, asking each to choose one restaurant-quality recipe that reflected their deep connection to Chinese cuisine. Next, each recipe was assigned to a different illustrator. The artists were instructed to use visual storytelling to bring the dish to life - while integrating the full recipe text into the illustration.

Cookbooks that explore international cuisine - especially Chinese food - always catch my interest - and this title promises to be extra special considering the talent involved. More information about this project and how to become a supporter can be found on their Kickstarter page.
